  1. It will do me good to live in a community again rather than down the lane, although I love it.

  4. That time of year to get things done before the snow flies! We got new windows put in yesterday plus kitchen sink the week before. I think we are ready....no we aren't....snow tires need to be put on. Never ends!
    Your new kitchen sounds great, John. Funny how it all seems to happen at once.

  5. Workers in the house are a pain in the neck. However, if all turns out well, it is worth the interruption.

    That is a strange song by Tom Waits. I have quite a bit of his music, but never heard that one.

  7. This is what happens when an American carpenter runs out of log cabins to build. They just cannot keep their hands off their tools.

  12. How many days work will the kitchen and new window take? I had workmen at my house last week for two days putting in new floors, it is so disruptive but well worth the results once it is done. Tell the farmer my bouncy dog is named Bounce, might work as a moniker for his new pup too,

  13. I hope the workmen get your kitchen done as quickly as the guys who did our deck.

  14. I am confused. Is that Tom Waits the same one whose voice has been described as sounding as if it had been "...soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car."??? Fawn doesn't sound like his kind of tune.

  17. Well it's certainly "All Go" at your place John - and it sounds as if Weaver is closer to a moving date, so there'll be Action Stations everywhere! You're lucky the person who overheard your conversation knew who the other party on the line was - or you could have has some very compromising conversations before you found out it was happening .... hee hee - or BIG Ooops!!!!

  18. John, do you have any word on Auntie Glad? How is she, have you seen her lately?

  19. Not much goes on in our quiet little hamlet (Monique has put her jacuzzi away) so I love reading the snips of gossip from Trelawnyd.

  20. I wish I shared Winnie's enthusiasm for workmen, or even ANY men! 😀😁😋

  21. Love Tom Waits' music. 'Alice' is my favourite. Usually takes me a couple of listens to anything new for my ears to become accustomed.

  23. Oh that mans voice ... I could listen to him for hours.

  25. Kitchen being fitted .... exciting .... and, best be careful what you say on the phone for a while !!! Photos of Winnie with workman please ...... perhaps leave a slipper around for relief purposes !!! XXXX

  26. That phone situation is very strange! We don't use our BT landline for phone calls -- only for internet -- and I guess I'm glad now.

  27. Love Tom Waits....one of the best concerts I ever attended. You must be so excited about your new kitchen....although I suspect you might be moving next year?
